This plant is already well-known to the West. Flowers in May, widely differing in color and form. Stems either shrubby or branched from the foot. The best species are native of central Japan. The flower often attains one foot in diameter. These plants have fanciful names in Japanese, which we give with as nearly as possible the English equivalent.
